It’s Just An Illusion

It’s not as it appears. Looks real, though, doesn’t it? Optical illusions are cool. We see it every day especially when they paint an ugly building or wall with an illusion. It fools the eye. The French call it a Trompe D’oeil (pronounced Trump Duh-ee).

What is not cool is the illusion of your data being backed up when it isn’t. It is astounding how many businesses we find that think their stuff is being backed up, but it isn’t. It is an illusion.  And often it is hard to spot since hardware can be at fault, even if it is brand new.  In fact 30% of hard disk drives have failures and errors.  Hardware, software, and operator failure can create a huge problem for your business.

One company was assured by their IT guy that they were being regularly backed up. Problem was, nobody bothered to verify that it was doing what it said it was doing!

Has anyone run a “reality check” on your backups lately? Do you think it would be a good idea? If your backups failed you could be in a real crevasse, couldn’t you?

Of course, we can help – but, preferably before you suffer a crash and you need that backup!
